May family's from Indiana & Illinois

I am looking for any May families from Indiana and Illinois. I have family that came from Stephentown, NY, Ganges, MI, Chicago, IL. If there are any of your family members that came from any of these places please email me at Maybe we are related!

how in the world do I find an ancestor from canada that came to ny?

How do I find an ancestor from somewhere in canada, who moved to ny, but changed his name once here, from Lemay/Lamay to May. All I know is he was a horse breeder/farmer and his land (family lore says it was a huge chunk of Quebec) was taken from him by orders from a queen. He is either the James J. May, 70, (wife Louisa, 60) or the John May 32, (wife Mary, 26) on the 1860 Allegan Co., Ganges Twp., Michigan census. James or John is the father of my GG-Grandpa named Francis (Frank) John May b. 12-4-1841, Rensselaer Co., Stephentown, NY. He married Margaret Landry, 11-11-1862 in Allegan Co., Ganges Twp., Michigan. Me and several family members have been at a brick wall for over a year now. No one is able to find out who Frank's parents are from canada. Please email me with any ideas!!!

Lemay/May Can/NY/MI/IL/IN

I am looking for any information on the May's that came before Francis John May b. Dec 4, 1841. He served in Civil War. Michigan 13th Infantry, Company B from 1861-1863. He married Margaret Landry and then Ann Jane Smith. I can't find out who Frank's father was. His father was born in Canada. Can anyone please shed some light on this. I'm totally stuck!!!
